  • Wednesday Campanella Performs ‘Buckingham’ on THE FIRST TAKE

    27.October.2022 | MUSIC

    Wednesday Campanella made its first appearance on the 254th episode of THE FIRST TAKE, a YouTube channel that captures one-shot musical performances, on October 14, 2022.The group performed the song Edison, and the video currently has over 3.9 million views. Following this incredible success, the band has once again appeared on the channel. 

     

     Buckingham – Wednesday Campanella / THE FIRST TAKE

     

    The second song performed by the group on THE FIRST TAKE is Buckingham from the digital EP Neon, released in May 2022. Utaha’s rap skills are even more incredible live, and despite the nonsensical lyrics, it’s impossible not to groove along. Be sure to watch Utaha’s unique facial expressions and check out her one-of-a-kind fashion.

    Comment from Utaha, Wednesday Campanella’s Vocalist

    “This song focuses a lot on Kyuden, a district of Setagaya in Tokyo. It also references the spelling by pointing out that Kyuden is spelled with a kanji found in the word for ‘school lunch’ and ‘rice paddy.’ It’s nonsensical, and Kenmochi Hidefumi, who writes the lyrics for our songs, came up with this weird track. There are so many words crammed into such a short song, and honestly, my mouth gets a workout every time I sing it. It switches between really cute and really cool throughout, so I made sure to really focus on each and every facial expression this time!” 

  • Tetsuya Komuro and MARiA from GARNiDELiA Release Collaboration Song and Music Video

    21.October.2022 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    The famed Japanese musician and producer Tetsuya Komuro and MARiA from GARNiDELiA have released a collaboration track and music video. Trust On Me -Theme of E.T.E- was released on October 16, 2022.

     

    The track serves as the theme song for the new mobile game E.T.E. Chronicle, launched by bilibili on October 14. The game’s music was written, composed, and arranged entirely by Tetsuya Komuro. MARiA from the music duo GARNiDELiA provided vocals for the theme, known for her work on a number of anime and game properties. 

     

    The music is reminiscent of TM NETWORK’s TIME TO COUNT DOWN released 32 years ago, starting with an incredible piano solo and a sense of speed and urgency. Featuring lyrics about trust and faith, the song is a perfect fit for the game.

     

    The music video features full 3D game footage interspersed with footage of MARiA and Tetsuya Komuro in the recording studio.

     

    “I asked MARiA to provide the vocals because I knew that she could embody the game’s message,” Komuro said. “The most important thing was expressing a sense of speed and femininity.”

     

    “I’m so happy and honored to have been chosen to take part in this wonderful and timeless collaboration,” MARiA said. “I hope this song pulls everyone into the world of E.T.E. Chronicle.”

    The song’s message is powerful, expressing that while we can’t always control what happens in life, we should always strive to pilot our own course as best we can. Mukai, who is a huge anime fan, studied the bonds and emotions of the show’s characters prior to creating the track, eager to make it something that fans would love.

A mid-tempo track, the song also incorporates elements of Future Beats, creating an emotional sound that is perfect for an anime ending theme.

    Comment from Taichi Mukai

    “I’m so happy to have been chosen to perform the ending theme for Tiger & Bunny 2! I decided to interpret the bonds and emotions of the characters in my own way, and I really wanted to sing about having the strength to move on in the midst of sadness and resentment. I hope that this track will capture the feeling of the series and the fans.”

    Comment from MARiA

    “I had a meeting with luz and kemu, and when we started chatting, we decided that since our voices are more adult, it would be perfect if we made a more sexy song. 

    All three of us have lived our lives as part of internet culture, so this song really shows off our history with all of its strengths!

    This is a song best listened to with headphones on–we really used our breath a lot, especially in the gaps between the music.

    Be sure to enjoy the perfect harmony between me and luz!”
